Starting again

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Worship the Lord your God (Luke 4:8; NIV).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT). 

All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God (Isaiah 26:9; NLT).

*******************************

Lord,

I start again,
With every breath,

To concentrate 
My heart and mind on you;

Not just in silent prayer 
And times of worship,

But all day long,
And all night, Father, too.

Until I find

Father,
During every silent prayer
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
Throughout every day and night
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
During every time of need
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
At the moment of my death
May I keep on seeking you,
Until I find.

When I awake, I am still with you (Psalm 139:18; NIV).

Stay close

 

Lord of all creation,
Lord of all temptation;

Lord of golden light,
Lord of darkest night;

Lord of life and breath,
Lord of brutal death;

Lord, whom we betray,
Stay close to us today.

Each day,
And my pillar of fire
Each night.
